Infertility Connections to Health

Infertility & Health

Infertility is estimated to affect as many as 186 million people worldwide,according to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Yale Fertility Center. And here’s the kicker, male infertility contributes to more than half of all global fertility cases.
Over the past fourteen years of working with women’s hormone issues, I can honestly say that one of the most vexing issues for a large number of young women is not just PMS, but infertility. Additionally, I’ve noticed that miscarriages are at an all-time high.
So,the question is how can you get pregnant and avoid the costly, and not always successful, alternatives of IVF, IUI and sperm injections.
I suggest that a couple take a more proactive approach and prepare for conception to help reduce the odds of infertility.
Hormonal imbalance is the main reason a couple struggles with conceiving.  and the main reason for hormone imbalance is poor detoxification of hormones. There are also many other contributing factors to hormonal imbalance, including stress, autoimmune, nutrition, body weight, medications, lifestyle choices, egg health, endocrine glands and even genetic predisposition.
Similarly, sperm count can be affected by stress, lifestyle choices, nutrition, environmental pollutants, smoking, genetics, illness, reproductive organ damage and even tight clothing.
My consultations with couples seeking to become pregnant focus on discovering the health issues that are leading to infertility problems.
When my clients focus on their preconception health, their chances of conceiving naturally increase exponentially and the babies arrive healthier as well.
These consultations involve both the mother and father, and require that both future parents take a proactive look at their own health. After all, you’re baby inherits your health.
   Both partners need to be involved in the process of conception.

Beating Infertility
How it works?
After looking at comprehensive blood and hormone panels, we can usually discover the health issues leading to infertility. Rarely, a medical reason exists that requires referral to a medical professional, but more often, there is a more obvious functional issue that we can address with nutrition.
If the parents are nutrient deficient, not only will conception be problematic, but the baby will most likely be born with deficiencies as well.
Current research has confirmed that babies are born with increasing levels of toxins, and because both parents contribute to the baby’s toxin levels, I always recommend that both parents prepare for conception by detoxifying. It’s one of the simplest actions you can take to help with conception and your baby’s health.
If you’ve been trying to conceive for more than a year, it may be time to consult with an expert.

Major reasons for infertility in females:
  • Impaired ovulation
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (the most predominant cause of infertility in young women)
  • Endometriosis
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Low thyroid function (can lead to miscarriages and anovulatory cycles)
  • Autoimmune conditions that affect the ovaries (can lead to premature ovarian failure)
  • Toxicity (toxins such as BPA and pesticides can disrupt hormones)
  • Smoking
  • High prolactin
  • Autoimmune rejection of sperm (can be seen with PCOS)
  • Stress and inflammation (impaired egg development)
  • Celiac disease/non-celiac gluten sensitivity
  • Nutrient deficiencies: zinc, iron, methylatiom deficiencies such as B12, B6, folate (this can occur from long-term use of contraceptives)
  • Coffee, alcohol
  • Overtraining (female athletes are prone to anovulation and missed periods)
In males:
  • Celiac/non-celiac gluten sensitivity (studies show that celiac can lead to hypogonadism and block the action of male hormones
  • Toxicity: (BPA can cause infertility; pesticides can block and mimic male hormones and increase estrogen in males)
  • Coffee, alcohol
  • Nutrient deficiencies: especially zinc (low zinc can lead to a low quality of sperm and low testosterone)
  • Stress
  • Diabetes, obesity and insulin resistance (these inflammatory conditions can lead to damaged sperm and erectile dysfunction)
  • Low thyroid function (hypogonadism is more prevalent with hypothyroidism)
Remember the health of the baby is totally dependent upon the health of the parents.
